Get Involved With The CRC Info Meeting

Since 1997, the CRC has been planning activities at Holy Trinity. The group originally was meant for "Young Adults" ages 20's and 30's but as the years passed we realized that we could not exclude or kick out our friends who were still important members of our community once they turned 40! Today the CRC is an all inclusive group for those who are Young Adults in their hearts and minds. You will find plenty of people in your peer groups and beyond. On Sunday , February 21st we are going to invite all who want to find out more about the group and how to get involved for a short and informal gathering prior to the 5:30 mass at Holy Trinity. Current and past CRC Council members will be on hand to share experiences and take you ideas on things that the group can do. Following the meeting the group will go to mass together (we'll have reserved seating) Then after mass we will go out for food and drink to Blondies for food, drinks and Socializing Do I need to be a member of Holy Trinity to participate? No, our members come from all over the tri state area. What is the age limit? There really is none (do you think Jesus would be that exclusive!) You will find most people are 20's - 40's and some 50's. It is more about being Young at Heart. What does the group focus on? Mainly social activities and community service events. We will also have spiritual activities from time to time. If I can't make the meeting how can I get involved? Try to come for the party afterwards or to any Sunday evening gathering.

After Mass Gathering Palm Sunday Pizza Party and Godspell Movie Screening

Join us for the 5:30 Mass at Holy Trinity for Palm Sunday and the Passion. Following the service we will go downstairs to The Parish Center for a reception, socializing, Pizza and a screening of the film Godspell! This is a tradition that we used to do many years ago and it was always fun and meaningful. Godspell was a Broadway musical and film based on the gospel according to St. Matthew. It is a clever way of retelling the stories from the gospel. The film is fun to watch especially since it all takes place in NYC in the early 70's with many scenes on the Upper West Side. A young Victor Garber (Titanic/Alias) stars as Jesus will have about a half hour of socializing . How does this work? Come to mass or come for the party. We will be in the parish center under the church. We will have a bout a half hour of socializing then start the film. You can sit and watch on one end of the parish center or you can continue socializing near the back. Dress code: Casual Cost: $10 to cover the cost of food and drink. Can I come alone? Yes, many people come alone. We have council members ready to greet you and introduce you to others. Do I need to be a member of the parish? No, 80% of those who come to the CRC events are from all over the tri state area. Is there an age limit? Although the CRC started many years ago as a Young Adult Group, several of those people are still active in the group and there are always new people both young and older coming out. There are people of all ages that are young at heart! You will find that most attendees are in their 20's, 30's 40's and even a few 50's!

Dominican Republic Mission Trip

This may be one of the most profound experiences you have ever had! This will be our 11th visit to the Mission of San Pedro in El Cercado in the mountains of the Dominican Republic. During this trip you will live and work alongside the mission workers helping to do the day to day projects which will include: bringing food and clothing to the poor, reforesting and planting, delivering school supplies to kids in need, resupplying mission resources, helping to beautify buildings via painting, cleaning and more. You will also get an idea of the many other projects that they are involved with.

There are 75 villages in the mountains that the mission caters to. Many of them were devastated when the dictators allowed American C0mpanies to come in and cut down all the trees on the hillsides without reforesting them thus allowing all the farm-able soil to wash into the valley. The missions goals are to help reforest the land, provide agricultural education, build aqueducts for fresh water, latrines for sanitation, build schools for education and help with finding medical care and assistance for the sick.

The mission is run by the Archdiocese of Rockville Center but this is not a religious trip however there is an opportunity for a very spiritual aspect if you wish to use your free time that way.

The trip includes: $575 (payable to check only)
